Nailed it

This last week, we were so happy to host our friends Mardi and Jon all the way from Maine. Jon is a master carpenter with an amazingly eye-popping shop where he creates cabinets, furniture, and more.

On their last evening with us, Bill and Jon brainstormed a bit on the design for our dining table that Bill will be building. The design includes a live edge down the middle that folds over to create a more narrow table for everyday use. When we have guests, we would fold it out for more seating. With the live edge down the middle, the boys wanted to think through how the hinging would work and what the legs would need to accommodate with the table both folded and unfolded. Math, geometry, and physics, oh BOY! All play a role in carpentry.

The kraft paper covering our temporary table makes a perfect sketching area!
